While Virginians will certainly be thrilled to be out from under the thumb of Gov. Terry McAuliffe in 2018, his gun-limiting legacy looks to be here to stay for the time being.
McAuliffe, who was a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter so entrenched in the democratic party that he was once rumored to be a veep pick for the former candidate, made headlines in 2016 when he attempted to swing the entire state’s voting scheme to the left. The shady governor worked to restore voting rights to hundreds of thousands of convicted felons, understanding that they they would overwhelmingly support Clinton in the general election.
Luckily, McAuliffe’s malfeasant maneuver was too little, too late in a nation whose conservative awakening was just getting started.
Unfortunately for Virginia, (and the nation at large), McAuliffe will be leaving the governor’s mansion in the coming weeks, with fellow democrat Ralph Northam taking his place. Northampost was originally published on this site
